1K Celebration

I asked you to follow me on YouTube and you did. Over 1000 of you watched my videos and liked them enough to say, I want to see more. THANK YOU!

Welcome to the Runwright Reads family! Part of the welcome celebration is that this weekend, you get to turn the tables on me – instead of me just reading what I want and telling you about it, you get to choose a book for me to read and I have to read it on Sunday.

Click here to watch the video where I share the books that you’ll be choosing from

You don’t have to go easy on me. Pick the longest books if you’d like to give me a real challenge. The Luminaries clocks in at 848 pages, The Goldfinch has 771, Brief History of Seven Killings has 688 while The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke has a whopping 944 pages.

If the video moved a little too fast, see below for a list of all the books on my TBR stack and I look forward to your comment on my YouTube channel (You have to subscribe and comment your pick on YouTube in order to make a selection)

Thanks for reading, and watching and I hope you have a great weekend.
